Remember Fenton? He’s the Labrador retriever who got away from his owner in a park in London and chased a herd of deer across a busy street — all while his owner chased after him screaming his name.
“Fenton! Fenton! Fentonnnnnnnn!”
The video became a viral sensation and it’s one of the few viral videos that really holds up over time. Go watch it again if you don’t believe me. There’s something about the anguish and desperation in the voice of the owner that makes me laugh every time I watch it.
In a novel and awesome move, the famous Fenton video was just “remastered” (remade is a more accurate way of putting it) by a UK mobile company for a new ad campaign. The people behind the new version did an incredible job. They took a video that was already pretty epic and cranked it up to a new level of awesomeness.
Take a look:
Pretty great, right? All the best parts from the original are still there and now there’s a Tyrannosaurus rex, too.
I have no idea what 4GEE is and I probably never will because I don’t live in the UK, but I would buy whatever products they sell if I could.
